Las Vegas—I'm here at the Couture, Luxury, and JCK jewelry shows to get a glimpse of the latest trends in engagement rings, wedding bands, and wedding day jewelry. All of the biggest jewelry designers are here. And the amount dazzle happening has Las Vegas sparkling even brighter.
But the first thing I want to tell you about is actually not conventional jewelry. On display by Roberto Coin, I marveled at this gold patent leather purse—a creation that only a jewelry designer could make. The leather is actually covered in 24kt gold then topped with a sheen. The intricate chain strap is also made of gold, but can be snapped off to wear as a necklace on its own. At upwards of $30,000, you can place this in your fantasy collection! —Michelle Preli
